Science is planned following specific objectives for investigation, ensuring continuity and progression across the year groups. Learning takes place through the study of Animals including Humans, Living Things and their Habitats, Materials and their properties, Uses of Materials, Plants, Seasonal Changes and Working Scientifically. Children are encouraged to ask questions and find answers through experimental and investigative aspects of Science. They develop their skills of recording and interpreting their findings.
On a three year cycle, Science Week enables children to immerse themselves in exciting and innovative learning experiences. Learning is enhanced by inviting visitors and parents into school to run experiments; activities are varied and very practical. Children participate in investigations thus encouraging learning to become personalised.
